Possible inflo on Scentsation?

Robert (zone 7a, Oklahoma)May 1, 2013

So I like everyone else have been staring my plumies down for signs of inflos. I'm pretty certain my Celadine is pushing one up but not so sure about Scentsation. Could this be one of those tricky false inflos? Maybe it's decided it's lanky enough as is and has decided to branch out some?
Your thoughts?

Ack! Don't tell me that, Mike! ;)
I'm not even 100% certain it is Scentsation since I got it off eBay.
Guess I need to learn to be patient. Ha!

Im sorry I bought it on 7-12-2011 so it would be 2 years old to me this July.

Im not very patient either.

Robert,
It is definitely "trying" to be an inflo. I will keep my fingers crossed for you but there is a good chance that it will "nub" :( It will most certainly branch though :)

Thanks, Pharaoh! I suppose either way will be better than its current state which is a super tall lanky single tip plumie. Laugh.

Do you see tiny buds on its head? If not it might be a false inflo unfortunately...I have one of those growing on my rooting Kimo.

Hey, Kenny.

Nope. Just see tiny claws. Oh, well. It's currently ridiculous looking (looks like a giant fat finger coming out of a pot) so some branching would be appreciated. :)

Hi Robert

Just as I suspected...your Scentsational may have decided to skip inflo and branch out instead. Either way, it's making good progress :)

Robert,

It really looks like a "false info" to me. I had a seedling that did the false info for me and branched and now the branch has a false info. I don't know if I will ever see that one bloom!!!

All I can say is it better be worth the wait or else it will for a good grafting practice plumeria :)

Ha! Joan you give me too much credit for patience. If this sucker doesn't bloom this year it will probably be given away. :)
I would like it to branch so fingers crossed!

Oh, and I just realized it should be 'Scentsational'. Doh!

No way, Robert, I will not let you--Scent Hound--give away a Scentsational! Let her do her branching thing and she'll eventually reward you for your patience on her three new branches. I promise!

If not, you can come down here and tell me off to my face ;-)

Ha! Too funny, Jen. I wish I had your patience. Can't believe you didn't have any inflos last year on your 60+ trees. I would have started collecting other plants. ;)

I'm sure with all the Dyna-Gro fertilizer, Pro-tekt, maybe some foliar spray (read a pretty interesting article about Epsom salt) and what not that sucker will be blooming away in no time! :)
